High Potency Antioxidant Formula
- Stimulates the immune system
- Protects against free radical damage
- Traditional, high-potency antioxidant vitamin and mineral blend
Exposure to environmental pollutants, everyday stress, and even natural body processes that convert oxygen to energy all create damaging free-radical compounds in the body that contribute to physical and mental aging, damage and disease. Cells, proteins and DNA are all subject to attack and damage from free radicals. Antioxidants are an integral part of the body's free radical defense system and work as scavengers to help neutralize harmful free radicals and protect cells from damage.
Bronson Super Antioxidants is a high-potency blend of traditional antioxidant vitamins and minerals that has been designed to help protect against free radical damage. In addition it helps stimulate the immune system. Each tablet includes an array of nutrients, including:
Vitamin A (as beta carotene): Beta-carotene is a member of the carotenoids, which are a group of fat-soluble compounds that are naturally present in many fruits and vegetables and are responsible for their natural vibrant color. Beta-carotene, along with alpha and gamma carotene can be converted to active vitamin A in the body. Carotenes possess antioxidant properties. Each tablet delivers 10,000 IU of beta-carotene.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin utilized by every cell in the body. It is effective in maintaining a healthy immune system and provides antioxidant protection. Vitamin C works along with vitamin E, a fat-soluble antioxidant, and the enzyme glutathione peroxidase to stop free radical chain reactions. Each tablet provides 500 mg of pure vitamin C.
Vitamin E: Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that is a powerful biological antioxidant. Studies are underway to determine whether vitamin E, through its ability to limit production of free radicals, might help prevent or delay the development of some chronic diseases. Vitamin E has also been shown to play a role in immune function, in DNA repair, and other metabolic processes. Each tablet of provides 200 IU of natural vitamin E.
Selenium: Selenium is a trace mineral that is essential to good health. It is incorporated into proteins to make selenoproteins, which are important antioxidant enzymes. The antioxidant properties of selenoproteins helps prevent cellular damage from free radicals. Other selenoproteins play a role in the immune system. Selenomethionine, the form of selenium provide in Bronson's Super Antioxidants, is generally considered to be the best absorbed and utilized form of selenium. Each tablet supplies 25 mcg of selenium.
